Hall of Fame

The purpose of the Center for Entrepreneurship's Nebraska Distinguished Entrepreneur Award is to recognize entrepreneurs in the state of Nebraska who represent the ideals of Nebraska small business ownership. These recipients have started or substantially grown a business in Nebraska and are currently contributing to the economy of the State and/or their own local communities. They are nominated by past award winners, members of the Center for Entrepreneurship's Advisory Board and the Dean of the College of Business here at Nebraska, and inducted into the Nebraska Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame. We are proud to honor them as models of Nebraska entrepreneurial excellence.

At the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Business, the Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame recognizes alumni from Nebraska, as well as other business members throughout the state for achieving distinction and excellence as creators and builders of new business enterprises.
